Michelle Read, Ireland


By Michelle Read

Can a lifetime of love overcome any obstacle?

Marion and Adam have been happily married for 25 years, but when they decided to have an anniversary party they couldn’t imagine it would turn out like this.

In this drama-comedy with a big heart, the perfect party descends into chaos as pressure builds and a seismic event forces the Rice family to re-assess everything they hold to be true.

Bang! is a moving and compassionate new play about love, family and the struggle to truly be yourself.

For ages 16+
